Can an innocent wedding planner ever hope to be a bride?
As the niece of the most sought after wedding planner in all of England, Evelyn Whyte is desperate to save her aunt’s foundering business. All she needs is the perfect venue for a wedding. And there is no more perfect venue than North Cross Abbey, the ancestral mansion of Justin Powell, the man whose reputation she had saved from scandal-wagging tongues ten years before.
Justin Powell is a man who believes in paying his debts. When Evie comes to him for help, he has no choice but to surrender his home to the determined duke’s granddaughter. But Evie invades his heart as well, putting the daring double life he is living—and her own life—at risk.
As Evie strives to turn a simple wedding into the social event of the season, she finds herself falling beneath the spell of Justin’s amiable charms, not realizing they mask a dangerous secret. Justin vows to keep Evie safe, but who will protect him from the tantalizing peril of falling in love?

West is a man with a tarnished past. No apologies, no excuses. However, from the moment he meets Phoebe, West is consumed by irresistible desire...not to mention the bitter awareness that a woman like her is far out of his reach.

She’s the daughter of a strong-willed wallflower who long ago eloped with Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent—the most devilishly wicked rake in England.
